We price according to menus and party numbers so all estimates are provisional and final quotes will be agreed with the client.

We are a small, family-run business and pride ourselves on offering a premium quality service using fresh, locally sourced ingredients - always free range chicken and eggs, sustainably sourced fish and organic wherever possible.
